    Didn't Last Forever

    I always wished for a long lasting friendship. I had one but it only lasted for eight years until she died. It was one of the hardest time for me. No one can replace her but I do hope I find another friend as her.

    I don't care what you believe,

    what race you are, what your sexual orientation is, all I care about is your personality. Nice, funny, kind, caring, compassionate, sarcastic, humorous, and supportive are all I look for in someone:)

    When I was a child I lived almost entirely in

    my own head, I was good at school but hopeless socially. It wasn't until I was 18 that I had my first friend. In my twenties I drove taxis casually and that helped me learn to chat with people. At first I would say lots of dumb things but the great thing about driving cabs in a...

    Will I Ever Achieve That???

    So, I want friends who would never leave me under any circumstances unless they are dead. Is it too much to ask for? I don't think so.

    HI ANYONE! I'd like to have a friend

    who I can tell everything to, and you could tell anything to me. I don't want this to be a quick thing. I am truly looking for genuine people. Preferably female, so I know how to talk to them, but anyone is okay! :)

    I know it's stupid to be wailing about a friend since a very long time. But I can't help it. I miss him. It hurts so much. I miss having emotional support. Please please please come back.

    Lasting Friendships

    The only real lasting friendship I have is with my boyfriend.  I can tell anything to him , be myself in front of him , and always know he is there for me.  My "friends"  all left me either when I had my kids or once I got into the Juggalette lifestyle.
